Festival of Youth Choirs

The 2022 festival has been cancelled

YouthCUE is an interdenominational organization which seeks to radically impact the lives of youth through the youth choir experience. This organization, founded in 1990, boasts over 30,000 active youth members from all over the country. Each year, youth choirs gather at various locations to participate in YouthCUE festivals. These choirs learn a prescribed repertoire, then join with others from across the nation to perform together. These events demonstrate a high standard of excellence, while also creating an exciting outreach atmosphere for the youth involved. Baylor is proud to host one of the five YouthCUE festivals each year. The most recent Baylor festival attracted youth choirs from as far east as Louisiana and as far west as California. Each festival concludes with a Grand Concert, which is accompanied by members of the local professional symphony orchestra and is free and open to the public.
